The White Party was a HUGE success!!  The weather was absolutely glorious, and attendance was high :)  We couldn't have asked for a better evening.

The only downside was Stage 5 Clinger.  He showed up quite intoxicated.  He made a fool of himself.  We asked him to leave, and the friends he brought with him tried to call to secure a ride for him.  No luck.  So, eventually they drug him out of the party. 

The most amazing part, to me, was his behavior while he was there.  At first I was embarrassed, but then I realized that I had no reason to be.  This grown man was totally embarrassing himself, and everyone was laughing at him.  Not at me. 

I unfriended him on Facebook.  I have ignored his texts since the party.  If he doesn't get the point, I've prepared the following to send:

J____,

I do not have any desire to get to know you any more than I already do.  You embarrassed yourself at my home on Saturday night due to your drunkenness, and as if that wasn't enough...you approached many of my friends asking them if they had any pot.  Clearly this was inappropriate, and I would appreciate it if you would kindly lose my number.

Best,
T

Needless to say...I did NOT introduce him to my girlfriend!   Well, I did "technically" introduce them, but then I told her to run like the wind.  I wouldn't wish this guy on my worst enemy.

When MK sent this to me, we had someone else in mind.  I do believe it is appropriate to post today in honor of Mr. Stage 5 Clinger:

 


AND NOW...

I hope you all had a lovely Labor Day weekend.  I came up with a new mantra for myself over the holiday.

"I'm trying to do less and enjoy more."

It goes along with my "slowing down" theme :)

Congratulations to City Dreamer (and thanks for bringing my attention to another fun blog!!).

I'm SO sorry to hear about this terrible terrible guy and his terrible terrible atttitude. Little Miss Dependable recommends giving him a little spritz of pepper spray if he shows his face again!

Sorry I never made it to the white party...so much going on.
Glad the party was a hit and Stage 5 clinger was if nothing else a good laugh. Loser.

Congrats to the winner and to you for such a great party!! As for Satge 5 Clinger, all I can say is OMG! I pray that he gets the hint, but, if not, your reply is to the point and should get his attention. Good luck!

Congrats to City Dreamer!

Stage 5 clinger WAS annoying at the party- but please know that he didn't bother any of us. If nothing else, it was nice entertainment for the evening. Did you see when he tripped over game? One word- entertaining! Hahaha! He didn't ruin anyone's night and nobody judged you for him being a guest there :) There's always a messy drunk at the white party, and I am just glad it wasn't me :) although... did you see the pictures of mine and Kait's dance party? ohhhh goodness.

City Dreamer said...

Thanks for the congrats, all :) I'm super excited & sending my email now.

So glad to see such happy Labor Day pics! Hope everyone had wonderful and relaxing (and entertaining, to say the least!) weekends. And T, I am SO onboard with your new mantra! Wait til you hear about my busy bee weekend, phew...

Thank you!

Jenny DB said...

Oh man, that sounds quite... awkward :-) Haha at least he was entertaining, it sounds like. We had, err, kinda a messy weekend ourselves so i'm gonna refrain judgement haha

Congrats to the big winner too!!

Congrats to city dreamer.
Glad your party was a success. Stage 5 Clinger sure made it easy for you to tell him to hit the road :)

Carole said...

Congrats, City Dreamer!

Gosh, Stage 5 Clinger sounds more like a Stage 5 Tropical Storm--quel loser. There is someone MUCH better out there for you.

Sassafrass Jane said...

OMG, I'm totally cracking up at your story about Stage 5. What a loser! I know you're super annoyed, but his embarrassing behavior has me laughing...
What a classy White Party, missy! Wish I could have crashed it ;)

undomestic chica said...

Your letter to him is still so kind! I don't think I'd have any patience after behavior like that.

Looks like the White Party was a huge success. There is one adorable white puppy that seems to be missing in the pictures though!

Ashley @ KiwisandCocktails said...

I seriously just laughed out loud! HOw freaking hysterical that Stage 5 clinger came bombed and made a fool of himself. Love the note and the sign about Getting your s--t together is too funny!

Vynuss said...

Hilarious that Stage 5 Clinger made a fool of himself! Not your issue. However he's provided some laughs for people.
Your pictures from your party looks like so much fun! I love it. The lanterns are awesome.
